QUINCY — The Quincy School Board unanimously approved the 2022-23 fiscal year budget for the school district.

The budget calls for spending $96.1 million with revenues topping the $100 million mark for the first time in district history, thanks to an increase in federal dollars.

So if this year’s nearly $4 million budget surplus holds, it would push the district’s year-end fund balance to $47.2 million.

The School Board also:

  • Recognized Cyndi Ott, school nurse at Early Childhood and Family Center, as one of three finalists for Illinois School Nurse of the year. She has been with the district for 25 years and is retiring at the end of the school year. The award is given by the Illinois Association of School Nurses and Ott was nominated by Brandi Kirby, director of nursing for QPS.
  • Approved a 60-month lease with Dell Apex Backup Services for additional IT security to prevent hacking. The total cost of the lease is $188,131.
  • Voted to sell sports equipment left behind at the K&L Arena after the district bought the property. The building is in the process of being converting to a facility that will house transportation, technology and maintenance. Some of the items available are scoreboards, basketball/volleyball courts, field turf and boards used for indoor soccer.
